Giving young people the skills and knowledge they need to campaign online safely about issues they're passionate about.

Element Society and Chilypep are working together to make young people as prepared as possible for safe and successful online campaigning. The Gen Z project trains young people in things such as project planning, goal setting, and online safety, as well as offering support with launching and running on and offline campaigns.

It has been really inspiring watching the young people take the training we've given them and use the skills to develop campaigns on issues they are passionate about. They have worked really hard and have so much knowledge and insight into the issues they've chosen.
